Andrew Z. Colvin[edit]

My name is Andy and I am a U.S. citizen, born in Phoenix, Arizona, lived in Colorado most of my life, and now live in Phoenix again. I am fascinated with science and am currently a student at Arizona State University working towards a degree in the biological sciences. I am working to become a post-secondary educator and dream of becoming a public science educator. My major interests in biology are evolution, zoology, biogeography, paleontology, ecology, and ethology.
